Pollock-Krasner House and Study Center

  • Constructed: 1879
  • Location: East Hampton, NY

The Pollock-Krasner House and Study Center, a National Historic Landmark, is where Jackson Pollock and Lee Krasner, two of the 20th century’s foremost abstract painters, lived and worked. Located 100 miles east of Manhattan in East Hampton, New York—in the heart of America’s premier art colony—the house is typical of 19th century farmers' and fishermen's homes in the area. The house contains all of the artworks and artifacts left behind after Krasner's death in 1984, including many of Pollock's belongings. The studio, originally built for storing fishing equipment, was moved per Pollock's request before being converted into his studio where he created some of his most famous paintings. Visitors see the studios where Pollock and Krasner created their most famous paintings, and the home they shared from 1945 until their deaths.
